It has impacted not just those from the legal background but also others, the stories narrated therein have also touched the human chord of my readers."

A writer who is fond of travelling and is a foodie, we asked her about her favourite vacation and food; she quickly mentions Seychelles, my honeymoon destination was a beautiful experience. Leh-the land of mesmerising mountains is another place that made me realise the true unexplored beauty of India.
'Leh' is a place I want to visit again and again. I don't just eat to live, I live to eat as well! My favourite food would be Malai Kofta, Butter Naan & Pav Bhaji which is something I can even eat every day!!
When The Crazy Tales team, asked her if she had any crazy or influential incident which brought a change in her & would like to share with us, she replied, During one of the Mind Rocks Youth Summit organised by India Today, held in New Delhi a few years ago, I got to meet Chetan Bhagat for a brief period since he was one of the Guest Speakers. I shared with him the fact that I am a budding Author and he advised me to start writing short stories. It was a great influence and in fact, my debut book is a collection of 6 short stories itself. He may not even remember this incident but it left a deep impact on my life."
